What is Weak Chain?
An intellectual playing super show, this program
was thought out in Great Britain. The real name of "Weak Chain"
is "The Weakest Link". Currently "The Weakest Link"
airs on BBC Worldwide, leading the international broadcasting. Probable
secret of such popularity is that the contestants must be able not
only to win, but to lose before millions of viewers' eyes.
The game consists of 8 rounds, 9 contestants participating. The
contestants meet each other only a half an hour before the game
starts. During the first round the team is asked questions, earning
money for right answers. Before the second round the contestants
consult about who is the weakest link. The weakest player leaves
the game, being put down by the host instead of any prize. Continuing
on the same lines, the two remaining contestants compete each other
after the seventh round. And the only one person, the winner, can
take the money earned by the team in the beginning of the game.
The prize worth is usually 300 thousand of roubles.
This game was designed not only for erudite persons. If one wants
to win in it, he must be a very good psychologist and strategist,
only in that case he can win over the host and the other team members.
The game points the contestants' analytical gifts and their ability
to find the solution. The winning person can play in a team, keeping
in mind he's playing with his enemies at the time. This hot-tempered
intellectual game presents the most modern TV format now.
